"If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write "me too" as a reply to this tweet", Milano wrote.

A tidal wave of #MeToo hashtags have taken over social media as women and men affected by sexual assault try to show the issue's magnitude.

French President Emmanuel Macron says that he wants to revoke Harvey Weinstein's Legion of Honor award over the multiple accusations of sexual assault and harassment against the Hollywood titan.

Actors Anna Paquin, Debra Messing and Laura Dreyfuss were among the first high-profile actors to reply with a "Me Too" of their own.

Also tweeting in support was Milano's former co-star on TV's Charmed, Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of raping her.

It's not just the women shining the light on sexual assault either, with men calling on their peers to "do better", too.

I was told not to talk about it.

He added, "That's what the 15 seconds didn't show", with regard to the video of the altercation posted on Instagram. Channel 9 looked into Maraghy's past and found he was charged with assault in 2013 but those charges were dropped.

"The boys barely got a slap on the wrist but I was socially ostracized because I 'couldn't take a joke, '" she said.

The Associated Press reports that the Weinstein Company is in negotiations with Colony Capital for a potential sale and NBC News is reporting that the New York Police Department is investigating two new allegations of sexual assault against Weinstein. Most importantly, it has convinced several women to share the abuses they have been victims with the Canvas.

The "me too" hashtag began gaining steam on social media where women and men shared their stores and experiences of being sexually assaulted.

One who has long ago made the rain and attractive time in Hollywood is accused of rape, assault, or sexual harassment by many actresses, some well-known, that, since a few days, have chose to break the silence about a behavior that lasts for years.

"To the women who have suffered any form of abuse of power, I stand beside you". According to Twitter, the hashtag has already been used more than 200,000 times.

Following the success of his message, Alyssa Milano was expected on the ground of the case, Weinstein.

Last week Milano wrote an essay for PatriotNotPartisan.com that said giving a statement on Weinstein was "complicated" for her for "personal reasons".
